Young Charters Towers woman celebrates “bloody amazing” Gold Lotto win
First a good wet season and now a Gold Lotto prize of almost $1 million – a Charters Towers woman in her 20s believes she’s enjoying a run of big wins.
The north Queenslander held one of the six division one winning entries in Saturday Gold Lotto draw 4149 on Saturday 24 April 2021. She pockets a division one prize worth $990,996.20.
While she checked her entry on Sunday, the woman confessed she didn’t dare believe the win was real until she spoke to us this morning.
“It’s bloody amazing!” she exclaimed.
“On Sunday, I just thought I’d have a look on the app, and it was saying I’d won.
“I just thought it was really weird. I didn’t know if it was real or not.
“Now that I’ve spoken to you, I can get excited now.
“I’ve only been playing for about five months – I just get a QuickPick. I can’t believe it!
“We were lucky out here in Charters Towers as we had a good wet season, and now I’m nearly a millionaire!
“I’m going to go home tonight and crack a beer.”
When asked how she might enjoy her almost-million-dollar fortune, the happy winner shared she planned to invest it so her family could enjoy it for many years to come.
The woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, purchased her winning 24-game QuickPick entry online at thelott.com – Australia’s official lotteries.
